Hi all, well I decided on a system that I would be buying on newegg but then some very interesting videos I found on youtube showed that, "hey, look, you only need a good GPU to run games!" So yeah that's what I do, game on a 1280x1024 resolution. My current setup is:
CPU: AMD Sempron 3400+ (2.0 GHz)
Memory: 1.5 Gigs of DDR
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4770 (just arrived)
My question is (I am in dire need of answers, this decision could potentially save me $200+ dollars) how much of a performance increase (in terms of frames per second) would I generally see in games if I upgraded my CPU to an AMD Phenom II X2 550 and the memory to a gig of DDR3?
I am in urgent need of help because I need to decide whether to just have my GPU and PSU or spend another $200 on the new mobo, the new CPU, and the new RAM.
Well if I can get over 15-20 fps in most games then I will be happy, I'm trying to spend as little money as possible because its my parents' money, so will my old CPU and the 4770 give me at least that amount of FPS in games? I can always buy more ram and/or overclock my CPU a bit.
